I did a site: example query in google because of a meta description debate I was having with a friend.

I noticed that it pulled up 3 different links to the same post.  I know that it’s normal to have many links to the same content but I didn’t know Google would index all of them.  Am I supposed to do something different here?  Or is this normal?

I have the canonical box checked in general settings.   http://mediafreshpress.com

Thanks,
Chris

Steve,

Thanks for the reply.  I actually have it set to where categories is the only thing that does get indexed.

I have my tags, author and archives set to noindex.  This seems like the unpopular setting but I’ve seen bad things happen with too many tags.  So, I figured letting my categories do all the work was best.  Do you think that’s a bad idea?
